SRCC is ready for Killion to move offices
Harrisburg, PA – Last night members of the Delaware and Chester County Republican delegation met and chose Representative Tom Killion to run in the special election in the 9th senate district.
“I want to personally thank Republican Chairmen Andy Reilly of Delaware County and Val DiGiorgio of Chester County for their oversight and leadership in this nomination process. I have known Tom for a number of years and I am looking forward to having his office on the Senate side of the Capitol” shared Senator Joe Scarnati, President Pro Tempore.
When asked about Killion’s past experiences, Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman commented, “As a County Councilman and a State Representative, Tom understands how to be a good steward of taxpayers’ dollars. His experience as a former small business owner will help our caucus continue to support legislation underscoring the need for fiscal responsibility and the promotion of a strong business environment.”
“There are twenty-five seats up for reelection this year including this race, we are confident that the voters throughout Pennsylvania will vote for our candidates who have continued to work tirelessly against the failures of Governor Wolf” stated 2015-2016 SRCC Chairman, Senator Scott Wagner.
The Lt. Governor has set the date for the special election to coincide with the primary on April 26th. Senate District 9 was recently vacated by Senator Dominic Pileggi in early January after being sworn in as a judge on the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas.
